I sold my 2004 130 Sport for $8000 two months ago.

A much nicer boat than the one Nick was pushing. This one is a great deal for a really nice boat, with good power besides, and way underpriced. Sometimes patience and good judgement pays off.

And oh yea, for an additional $200 bucks compared to the other one, you get a "polished trailer queen".

I was not pushing anything. And for being a traielr queen, what happened to the pinstripe?

Sounds fishy.
Here's the reply I got:


Yes the title is clear for the both and trailer. As mentioned in my previous message, the boat is located into The OnLine OutPost custody and i intend to close the transaction through their Third Party Agency. Using this type of Agency will give you the chance to inspect the product before I receive the payment for it. I will explain to you step by step how this will work:
A. First of all and most important, if you agree to close the deal, you will have to send me your shipping information ( your full name and address/ contact phone number and if available also a fax number ).
1. After I receive your shipping information, I will contact The OnLine OutPost and make the shipping reservation onto your name and with your shipping address as the intended receiver of the boat.
B. You will receive a notification from The OnLine OutPost as a confirmation that the boat is in their custody.
1. After that, you will have to send the payment to The OnLine OutPost .
2. The OnLine OutPost will verify the Transfer, and if everything is in order, they will deliver the boat to your door step. The payment is sent to The OnLine OutPost Agency and not to me directly. The payment will be forwarded to me only after you receive the boat and confirm that you accept it.
3. After you will receive the product and you will be completely satisfied with it, you will instruct The OnLine OutPost with your decision.
C. If by any reason, you will not be satisfied with the boat, you will return it to The OnLine OutPost with no expense. ( i will support all the returning taxes )
The boat will come with 10 days Return Policy ( period to inspect the boat condition and if by any reason you won't be satisfied, you will be fully refunded within 24 hours).
Please let me know what is your opinion and if you agree to start the transaction.
Thank you!

Sounds like an excellent way to lose $3800.

What a coincidence. I received the exact same response as frontier. I notice the ad has been removed from craigslist.

Hi, it's me, Vince, again - and if you call with your credit card within the next 20 minutes, for an additional $200 we'll include a bridge in Brooklyn... you'll be saying "Sham- wait...... Wow, it's a sham!"

Barring everything else you said - you got that right, Brother!

One thing my son noticed about this scam:
OnLine OutPost is a legit franchise, but there are no locations in Texas.
